The success of the CARABAO CUP is often frowned upon – but winning the cup comes with benefits, including prize money.
And Manchester United will be hoping they can boost their bank balance when they take on Newcastle in Sunday’s tasty final.
The Red Devils humiliated Nottingham Forest over two legs by scoring five goals with no response to advance to the final.
While Newcastle’s semi-final affair with Southampton was more of a competition, the Magpies emerged victorious 3-1 on aggregate.
It’s no secret that many consider winning the Carabao Cup less important than winning the FA Cup or the Premier League.
However, the winners of the competition will be guaranteed a place in Europe along with the prize pot.

What is the total prize money for winning the Carabao Cup?
Premier League clubs that have qualified for the Champions League or Europa League enter the third round.
While the remaining teams play in England’s top flight from round two.
So if a team that qualified for Europe wins the competition they take home £225,000, while other teams would receive £232,000 for playing an extra round.
But should a team starting from the first hurdle win the tournament, they would take home £237,000 for winning all rounds.
